AARCC’s professional and student staff aims to support faculty, staff, and students by providing resources and organizing year-round programs. At least one of our professional staff is an active member of the Student ACCESS Bill task force. This group from across many units of campus, other universities, and community organizations look at the needs of undocumented students by being student centered. Furthermore, all of our professional staff have gone through at least Safe Zone 101, if not 201 and other workshops. Safe Zone is an ally building workshop for the diverse lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer communities. Safe Zone is organized and facilitated by the UIC Gender and Sexuality Center.
